If you had convinced yourself that you've pissed people off who meant something to you with your immaturity and bastardness, wanted to put things right but wasn't fully sure how to or if it is all just in your head, what would you do? Take them to one side and do your best to explain yourself, take the slight risk of really showing yourself up and even making things worse? Go public with an apology because you know that'll stop you from saying too much, it'll mean you won't have to repeat yourself over and over as you talk to the specific people, it'll get it over and done with in one go and then you can go and hide for a bit? Try to be subtle around then and make mild references? Or try to pretend everything is rosy? That last one is an option, but not one I'd ever take. And public isn't my thing, although it's the easiest thing to do in some ways.
